Great place! Very beautiful. It is peaceful and quiet. We had 7 adult guests which is not ideal for a two bedroom place. I think 4-6 would be good if their are two people who don't mind sleeping on an air mattress in the living room. Two air mattresses in the living room was not ideal (especially if people snore) The bathrooms are connected to the bedrooms which is fine but at night you need to go into one of the bedrooms when people are sleeping to use the bathroom. Also it is $50 extra per guest after the first two guests. Something I didn't really think about. Overall this a really lovely place. Quiet, peaceful and very comfortable. It is very well taken care of and very clean. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen and grill is great. It is a great place to stay for 4 people. If you have more in your group I would inquire about renting an additional place on the estate. Steph was great. She greeted us and answered all of our questions. She was very quick to respond via texting. She was very welcoming and a pleasure to deal with.

This was such a beautiful place. Located in the quite country side of hollister. If you’re looking for a peaceful place or a family getaway this place is it.

WOW! This place is a hidden gem. We went as a group of 8 ladies, and everything about our stay was fantastic. The property is gorgeous and the perks were hard to beat. The house was beautiful and spacious, and we loved the pool area and fire pit. We fell in love with the cute cats that live on the property. We didn't have enough time to try the jacuzzi this time, but hopefully next time! The wine tasting was lovely-- Steph and Nate picked delicious local wines and paired them with excellent cheeses, crackers and nuts, and the pours were very generous. We loved the s'mores over the fire pit, too. Steph and Nate themselves are truly fantastic hosts. They were responsive and helpful whenever we contacted them, and in person they were warm, kind, generous, and fun to talk to. Couldn't recommend this place more highly.

We stayed in the farm for one night. Had a really great experience. Both the host are very friendly especially Steph who is super friendly to the kids. If not schedule limited, we would spend another day with them.

This was a perfect location for us to stay, after a family gathering at The Grove in Hollister. Steph was very helpful, with very detailed emails to help us find the Villa. Steph greeted us, and was very kind to allow me to arrive a little early to do the check in before our other family arrived. This was my very first experience with Airbnb, and I was a little unsure about what to ask, or what to expect. But the other reviews and Steph's answers to my many questions was really helpful. We had 8 in our group (4 couples), and the good thing is that we are all very close and comfortable with each other. We did have 4 very comfortable queen beds, 2 rooms and 2 roomy bathrooms. However 2 of the beds are air mattresses setup in the living room (again, very comfy). Honestly, we still had plenty of room in the kitchen, dinning room and living room for all of us to hang out after our family gathering at The Grove. The only additional feedback I can think to add would be, if you have allergies to cat's you might want to pack extra meds. My sister had a very bad flair up after arrival. However, our experience was great, and we would definitely return. This was a 4Star first experience!

Girls' Getaway Galore! Three 40-something college girlfriends needed a comfortable spot to get in some quality gab time. Steph & Nate's beautiful property was the answer! Located on a beautiful, secluded vineyard, the setting is serene and quiet. The villa offered a spacious eat-in dining area, perfect for catching up over coffee, and a nice seating area around a cozy fire for remembering the good old days. Upscale finishes in the bathrooms and kitchen are a bonus. Steph (we didn't get to meet Nate) is a total delight and incredibly helpful. She even hooked up a VCR for us (what's that?!) to watch an old tape from back in the day. She was also a great resource for restaurant and winery recommendations, though we barely left the property. All around a delightful trip in a excellent property with wonderful hosts.

Very great overall, but I must have overlooked the "fine-print" where it must have stated that there is no cable. For my Wife and I, this was a bit disappointing. The TV in one of the bedrooms is for "Picture Viewing Only", with only a USB dongle. That TV could probably only be good for your PS4, or XBOX, etc. Netflix is fine, but we already have Netflix at home, and have seen it all. Overall, very good. The stargazing is really "As described". Being far away from city lights, I could see the Milky Way with the naked eye. Bed seemed firm at first, but I happened to have a great night's sleep nonetheless. The property is very nice, and we'd definitely consider again in the future.
